2015-20 Orca Torpedos

It was just a little before 7AM on September 2, 2015.  The Wild Blue was anchored just off Discovery Passage in Small Inlet on the eastern side of Kanish Bay.  We were about ready to haul the anchor and get underway so to make slack current at Seymour Narrows.  Suddenly Alex hears shouts and a muffled scream from the crew.  Just then five Orca whales take a bead on the boat's port side and accelerate towards the hull.  We braced for a bump or two but the pod glided down and under the hull coming out on starboard.  Whew!
